Black Vademecum (model 4034) table lamp designed by Joe Colombo in 1968 and manufactured by Kartell.

This black Vademecum lamp is made of a plastic base and a stainless steel arm / shade. This part is adjustable and can even be completely folded. The lamp has a double on / off switch. The light intensity can therefore be influenced by adjusting the shade or by switching on one or two lightbulbs.

It is recommended to use LED light bulbs to prevent potential melting of the plastic base.
